Income Tax Filing Deadline Extended to November 16 for Most Californians
The Internal Revenue Service last week announced that it has extended until November 16 the deadline for Californians in every county except Lassen, Modoc and Shasta counties to file their 2022 federal income tax returns. That same day, California’s Franchise Tax Board announced that it has correspondingly extended the deadline for residents of 55 counties to file their state income tax returns.
Tax return deadlines had previously been extended through last Monday; the recent state and federal announcements grant filers an additional month to submit their tax documents. Officials had previously announced in March that the tax filing deadline would be extended in 55 counties after the Federal Emergency Management Agencies had issued disaster declarations in those counties relating to “severe winter storms, flooding, landslides, and mudslides” that hit the state in late 2022 and early 2023.
